BIDEFORD Rifle Club achieved a stunning double this week, with both its teams getting through to the Devon final of the inter-county Kynoch Shield competition.
This ensures that it will be Bideford shots representing Devon in the inter-county final against Cornwall next month.
The Bideford teamsâ€™ route to the final has been a tight affair, with three of their matches only decided after a re-gauge. But they were convincing in the semi-finals with the A team beating Tavistock by eight points and the B team beating Pinhoe A by two points.
The teams will now shoot against each other at the end of this month to decide which will represent their county in the match against Cornwall â€“ with the hope of repeating their success of 10 years ago, when they last lifted the trophy.
